      Nick K Not good, it was poor in everyway the original was good. It was badly written, and added nothing to the story. In fact it took away from the main character. I strongly recommend giving this a hard pass and sticking to the great original. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review David T The 2007 movie was for me one of the most amazing movie: so simple, yet such a captivating thought experiment that let me on a « What if ? » However, this sequel was very disappointing. The plot wasn't very engaging and the whole thing was very predictible. However, I enjoyed watching it just to see some interesting ideas, like the fact that it's a new era and that somehow something in the environment killed his immortality. Or the bonus scene at the end that suggests that John may be believed to be a psychopath, running from town to town every 10 years. Bottom line, it was interesting ideas, but it left me with a « Too bad, didn't leave me to wonder like the original movie ». Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/03/23 Full Review Randall B Movie dreadful. The last 30 minutes were worse than the first hour. So glad when it was over. The dialog was painful & whining. Gee, let's skip over what happened at the end. Boooo Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/12/23 Full Review David W This sequel fails to reach the high bar set by its much loved predecessor. The story contains some compelling premises not anticipated when the film originally came out. How would our protagonist continue his lifestyle in an era of ubiquitous information access and cameras? As identity verification has become normalized for even the most routine activities, how can someone who depends on switching identities, with no institutional support like an intelligence agent might have, continue their way of life? Instead of addressing these compelling questions, the story takes a more conventional film approach and loses Richard Schenkman's ability to create a compelling and engaging film centered on a conversation in one setting. The film features terrible development of newly introduced characters and an ending that gives the impression the filmmakers ran out of money and decided to abruptly call it done. Having seen this once, I feel no desire to watch it again. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review danerman73 A good movie in its own right but does not compare to the original masterpiece. This movie is a horror Sci -Fi fantacy with some of the themes from the original particularly the fact that John Oldmen(Young) is 14,000 years old and claims to be Jesus. I wish this movie would have been its own original with different characters instead of using John Oldmen from the original movie. A slight letdown from the original but I enjoyed it overall. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/05/23 Full Review Deven F I enjoyed this film almost as much as the first one. Really hoping they do a third to answer some questions they left unanswered at the end.

      Neil Young Hollywood Reporter This fitfully engaging affair only really passes muster as a potential pilot for small-screen continuations. Oct 13, 2017 Full Review Kimber Myers Los Angeles Times Unfortunately, it spends little time on the ideas and debate that made the original film so captivating for audiences who discovered it. Oct 12, 2017 Full Review Víctor López G. Espinof Unnecessary sequel in which its post-credit sequence confirms it as a kind of bad joke. [Full Review in Spanish] Aug 1, 2019 Full Review Scott Varnham Starburst The important thing is that we want to watch this one again. Rated: 8/10 Jan 26, 2018 Full Review Anthony Ray Bench Film Threat The Man From Earth: Holocene is a sequel that is quite enjoyable, but admittedly not as strong as the first classic film. Rated: 8/10 Oct 13, 2017 Full Review Maitland McDonagh Film Journal International It's hard not to wish The Man From Earth well, if only for being guided so firmly by its own star.
